KOPWA is Green Star Rated (plus some more exciting news)

KOPWA’s recently upgraded aged care facility on the North Shore has received a green star rating from the Green Building Council of Australia.

KOPWA is a longstanding local organisation and we share the community’s responsibility of caring for the planet as much as we care for our residents.

When redeveloping our aged care facility on Sydney’s North Shore over recent years, we kept the environment in mind. This was important to us so we can confirm we are providing a happier, healthier place to live for our residents and we can contribute to a more sustainable future.

This year, we are so proud to announce our latest residential aged care development is the first
Design & As Built/Design Review project in NSW to receive a 4 Star Green Star rating from the Green Building Council of Australia.

As the Council shared with us, achieving this rating represents ‘Best Practice’ in environmentally sustainable building practices. It showcases leadership in sustainability and confirms KOPWA is making an important contribution to a better Australia for us all.

The areas where we achieved best practice results include:

  • Energy use
  • Emissions
  • Transport
  • Indoor environment quality

The Green Building Council of Australia’s Green Star rating system is an internationally recognised system that is setting the standard for healthy, resilient, positive buildings and places. Developed for the Australian environment, Green Star has certified thousands of sustainable fit-outs, buildings, homes and communities across the country.

Achieving a four-star rating and joining the 3,600 other buildings to have done so demonstrates KOPWA’s commitment to best practices across everything we do. It is something our staff and the team who have worked tirelessly on our recent upgrade are very proud of and we can’t wait to welcome visitors to our brand new facility in Roseville.
